Some of you may already know memrise (for ios – ipad – iphone). It is a memorization application that cover an incredible variety of topics including languages. It basically works by reviewing the words you learned until you memorize them. It is as simple as that. And unless you have an eidetic memory, we all can struggle when learning different words and grammar rules in a different language. For example, I think I have kind of a decent memory but I very often find myself in a situation where I have a word inthe tip of my tongue but it won’t come out. Whatever I do, it won’t come out. It’s horrible, it’s super frustrating, but that’s when Memrise comes to the rescue. It’s an interesting platform that works very well as a complementary resource, especially for lexicon. They have official Memrise (for ios – ipad – iphone) courses but they also have user-created courses, making their content selection huge. I have to say that the official Memrise courses are generally better since they include great audio and video quality, but still the user-created content can be very good. For example, when you have to expand your lexicon. So yeah let’s try it out. But I need a table for that. All right, so this is the home page. So first of all you can click on Courses. So here in the left corner, as you can see, you have all the available languages but then you have other subjects like arts and literature, maths and science, the natural world. I don’t know, they have so many different courses but, yeah, let’s stick to languages. So as you can see I’m already doing a French course, and yeah. Let me show you how it works. So basically you have to click on the three dots, and you have all the options. For example, let’s learn new words. – Bonjour. – Bonjour. I think most of you know what this means, it’s basically hello, good morning. So yeah, you have the word in French and then the word in English, and then the literal translations, then some languages can be very useful. But yeah that’s just like extra info I guess. So yeah, let’s just click Next. – It’s, “What’s new?” And then, as a literal translations, what of new. That sounds very weird in English, but yeah. – Bonjour. – So, bonjour, we already know what that means because it’s the first word that appeared, and yeah we just gotta look for the word, and here it is. – Bonjour. – It’s the second sentence that appeared, and it’s “what’s new”, so “what’s new” here is number three. – So, here we gotta look for the word in French, and as you can see it’s in first place here. That means, “nice to meet you” in English. Yeah it’s as simple as that, it’s super easy to use, and then there’s another thing that I want to show you, so let’s go back, and here, the three dots. Classic review. This is basically the software, the memorization software that makes you review the words we just learned for example. But yeah, right now it says I have 30 words to review, or sentences, and let’s just jump into it. To speak, or to talk. That’s – I love it. It’s – I’m sorry, said by a woman, so let’s just click on the audio. That works. No. Neither. So… So yeah, as you can see, it’s very easy to use. Then the other thing I wanted to show you is the difficult words area. That is basically the same as the classic review, but that’s when, for example, you miss a word, or you wrote it, you spell it wrong, or something like that. Then the software will put it in this area, and because that means you need to work harder on that word or sentence. I mean it works well, it’s very simple to use, but I’ve used it to expand my lexicon, and yeah, it does its job. All right, let’s jump into pros and cons.  First of all it’s a free application. I don’t think there’s much to say about that. Then, it basically achieves at its goal. It works well as a memorization platform. The spaced repetition software is well designed, and it works great. Also, between the official courses and the user-created courses, it has a lot of content. It doesn’t look like you’ll run out of content anytime soon. One thing that I forgot to mention before, is that there is also a premium version, but one thing we noticed is that there’s not much difference between the free version and the premium version. Probably not worth paying for the premium version. But yeah, basically Memrise is not enough to learn a language. It has great use as an extra platform to reinforce or expand some areas of the language, but it definitely won’t provide a complete language learning course. But yeah, that’s pretty much it. Memrise is definitely an interesting memorization platform, and works very well at doing just that. But, I wouldn’t consider it a language learning application. As we always say, it’s generally a good idea to have access to different platforms when learning a language. Every platform has their strengths and weaknesses, and it’s up to you to take advantage of what it has to offer, even if they don’t check every language learning box. You know learning a language takes time and effort, so the more resources you have access to, the better.

Here is a review :

Memrise is really good! It has similar learning styles with other application, the flash card style memorization, but it also has audio and the “robots” saying the words sound very human, they are male and female voices so you can catch some of the nuances of each. One of the best features is it has video of natives saying the words. You can keep repeating the video until you have really understood the words. This helped immensely in my Japanese courses. The interface is really good too, easy to use, intuitive for practicing specific things, you can focus on just listening, spelling/writing/reading even your own oral. They recently added video of writing the hiragana and katakana. Now I can see the stroke order, and practice reading people’s handwriting and have more ideas of what it’s gonna look like on a billboard or sign here in Japan. I’m really really pleased with this application. Oh, and to top it off, you can download the courses so they will be available offline. I really can study anywhere. I thought 60$ for the year was reasonably priced, but I was bummed I didn’t see the 100$ unlimited, I think I would have liked to have bought that instead. This application beats the others, in my opinion by a long shot. You have to download all the free ones and practice each just to get a similar well roundedness that Memrise has, and then you still won’t get the most useful feature, the videos. I would recommend it to everyone trying to learn Japanese!!! Go Memrise!!!
